Beaches: A Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The incredibly popular New York Times bestseller—a compelling story of the friendship of two unique women—is back!
The story opens in 1951 as two young girls meet on the beach of Atlantic City. Cee Cee Bloom is performing in a kiddie show and Bertie White who has grown up in a conservative family is drawn to the glitter of Cee Cee’s world. They become pen pals and keep in touch as they grow ito adulthood. Cee Cee soars to stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, while Bertie settles into marriage and family. Through the years they share the ups and downs that are everyone’s life. There are failed marriages, motherhood, lost opportunities and wonderful moments. The story ends in 1983 with a heartfelt goodbye and the message that there is something that last forever: friendship.
From the Inside Flap
Loudmouthed, redheaded Cee Cee Bloom has her sights set on Hollywood. Bertie White, quiet and conservative, dreams of getting married and having children. In 1951, their childhood worlds collide in Atlantic City. Keeping in touch as pen pals, they reunite over the years ... always near the ocean.
Powerful and moving, this novel follows Cee Cee and Bertie's extraordinary friendship over the course of thirty years as they transform from adolescents into adults. A bestselling novel that became a hugely successful film, Beaches is funny, heartbreaking, and a tale that should be a part of every woman's library.--Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I had seen the movie, but never read the book. After seeing the remake of the movie I decided it was time to read the book. I enjoyed how the author added vivid descriptions about California. I enjoyed how she had some heated arguments between the two friends, but how their true friendship endured even the rough times.
The descriptions of the medical care that Cee Cee would have to administer for Bertie was very good. A true friend gave up her acting career to perform the most selfless act and care for her dying friend. Even more love was shown when she insisted she raise her daughter after she died.
A great read for mature adults due to language, content and subject matter.
